We are asking for your help in improving the area around Horatia and Leamington Houses after the tower blocks are taken down.

The 1960s blocks, in Meriden Road and Earlsdon Street, are being removed after we found problems with the original concrete construction while we were removing cladding. Find out more about why the blocks are being taken down.

We will replace the 272 homes in Horatia and Leamington with a minimum of the same number of units at social rents. This can be done in a number of different ways.

We are looking to make the most of this chance to improve the area and we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to be involved. 

We would like to know what you think should be done in this area after the tower blocks are removed.

Tell us what you think:

  • online
  • via email
  • download a feedback form - you can post your completed form to us, before Friday 5 July, using the postal address on the form. You can also drop it off at the Civic Offices or the housing office at Somerstown Central (the Hub), in Rivers Street.

If you would prefer to speak to us about this in person then please call us on 023 9284 1311 before Friday 5 July. You can book a home visit or an appointment here at the Civic Offices.

We will also host a public drop-in information session in the Somerstown Central café, at the Hub, on Tuesday 25 June, from 8am to 7pm. Please come and speak with us about anything that you would like us to take into account when we work on the plans for this area.
